Cannondale's Scalpel 1 is an ultra-light full-suspension rocket ready to fly over singletrack and put you on the podium at your next XC race. Made of light, stiff and vibration-damping carbon, this rig accelerates effortlessly, while 80mm of efficient rear travel smooths rough trails and flies up the steepest climbs. Up front, Cannondale's 100mm-travel Lefty Speed Carbon SL fork complements the ride with superb handling and an easily activated lockout. This beautiful bike is equipped with only the best, too, including Mavic's incredible Crossmax tubeless wheels, a superlight Shimano XTR drivetrain with FSA carbon cranks, Magura brakes, a Fizik saddle and seatpost as well as sure-footed Schwalbe tires.

The Scalpel was designed to increase the speed of elite-level riders by giving them the lightest suspension platform available anywhere. Cannondale pros race on the Scalpel because it's a faster bike, and they've won countless races to prove it.
